Rahmbo Fed Hot Rod Names of Acceptable Senate Candidates
Barack Obama was appalled- simply appalled by the Blagojevich allegations!
The One insisted:
“I have never spoken to the governor on this subject. I’m confident that no representatives of mine would have any part of any deals related to this seat.“
Obama claimed that his advisors’ hands were clean:
Earlier today it was reported that Rahm Emanuel spoke several times with Rod Blagojevich about the open senate seat.
Now, it is being reported that Rahmbo was even giving Blagojevich names of acceptable replacements.
The Telegraph reported:
Sources close to the investigation said Rahm Emanuel, the new chief of staff, had conversations about the issue with Rod Blagojevich and John Harris, the governor’s chief aide who is also facing corruption charges.
It is claimed that at one point he even gave them a list of acceptable candidates to take over the vacant seat.
Suspicion has grown that Mr Emanuel is the unnamed “Washington based adviser” mentioned in the 76-page prosecutors’ affidavit that Mr Blagojevich ordered his chief of staff to contact.
Mr Obama, who takes office on Jan 20, has vehemently denied any of his staff were involved in deal-making and has promised to reveal any contact between members of his team and the governor’s office.
The sources close to the investigation did not say Mr Emanuel had discussed any deals, but even being on receiving end of corrupt demands could be damaging to him and Mr Obama. The sources told Fox News that it was likely the discussions were recorded.
So, it looks like besides the list of acceptable names and several conversations, Barack Obama is correct…
His representatives did not take part in any deals related to this seat.
As of 4 PM this afternoon.
Tom Maguire has more thoughts on Rahmbo’s involvement.
Am I the only one who is looking forward to hearing these tapes?
